Jump modem returns – alert for Auckland Libraries

Philip Miles from Auckland Libraries has alerted me to a problem with one of the modem return forms. This one has been created by the Spark Foundation using ‘tfaforms’ and any forms using this platform have been blocked by the Auckland Council ICT Department. Philip suspects that a phisher might have used this platform to penetrate corporate networks and this could be the reason why it has been blocked.

Philip has asked for this particular form to be unblocked, but is advising the Auckland libraries team to use a device off the Council network in the meantime.

Library staff in other Councils might like to check if this form has also been blocked for them and if so, ask their IT team to unblock. The specific form in question is http://tfaforms.com/4864829
